Rake Calculation

Rake Calculation

As a commission for organizing an online poker game, we take a small percentage from each bank at the cash tables. This commission is called “rake”. The amount of rake depends on the type of poker, the number of players at the table and the limit you are playing. You can see the exact rake percentages below.

At the No Limit and Pot Limit cash tables, we charge rake as a percentage of the pot won at the end of each hand. The rake is calculated based on the number of players in the hand and the size of the pot. The rake is 5% but cannot exceed $3.

Calculation

We are for fair play and quality service. Not only do we have a high level of security at the tables, but also the fastest cashouts. This also applies to the correct calculation of rake. We use the popular “Weighted Contributed Rake” method to award you bonus points and determine your status in the loyalty program.

“Weighted Contributed Rake” method

When using this method, the number of points received depends on the amount of rake the players paid into the pot. A player who has paid $2 of rake into the pot will receive more bonus points to clear the bonus than a player who has only deposited $0.25 into the same pot. Players who folded and did not pay the blinds do not receive anything, because. did not put any money in the bank and therefore didn’t pay any rake.

The advantage of the “Weighted Contributed Rake” method is that players get their bonuses faster. The more hands someone plays, the more rake they will bring into each pot and the more points they will get.

We use the “Weighted Contributed Rake” method to calculate bonus wagering points and rank points you earn in our loyalty program.
